Zhejiang University (ZJU) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Illinois) have formed a joint research enterprise, the Dynamic Research Enterprise for Multidisciplinary Engineering Sciences (DREMES). DREMES is a unique umbrella for active collaborations among ZJU, Illinois, and the existing joint ZJU-UIUC Institute for Engineering in Haining, China. The enterprise explores fundamental global issues in human health, energy and environment, and sustainable manufacturing.
